>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

Too bad there just isn't that much here. I finished the whole thing and (I think) read all the text available in about 10 minutes. What's there is pretty cool, while it lasts. It doesn't take long to play, so why not check it out? I get the impression that if you leave the game thinking about the nature of interaction, it will have achieved its goal.

The writing is more poetry than prose.

There are some games I play where I think - is this game incredibly profound or is it total rubbish? It's a bit like modern art. Some people think piles of bricks, half a pickled sheep or an unmade bed are marvellous examples of creativity. Others, like me, think "What the heck is THAT about?"

Threading the Labyrinth, one of the games from the 6th Annual IF Comp, is one of those games which comes into that category.
